  1. Advancing Hyperspectral Imaging through IntegratedCompressive Sensing / Inpainting via Machine Learning

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: S5

    Hyperspectral datasets are massive. This size makes them difficult to acquire, store, transmit, analyze and use. Hyperspectral imagers (HSI) are also costly and complex, taking significant time or portions of a focal plane to acquire each spectral band. In addition, orbital HSIs are susceptible to radiation damage and inaccessible for repairs, making any damage long-lasting.nbsp;In this effort, we ...

  2. Dynamically Leveraged Automated (N) Multibody Trajectory Optimization

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: H9

    CU Aerospace (CUA) proposes further development of the Dynamically Leveraged Automated (N) Multibody Trajectory Optimization (DyLAN) tool, which solves impulsive and low-thrust global optimization problems in multibody regimes, and can do so in an automated fashion. NASA and commercial entities are in need of advanced methods that allow for rapid analysis of complex optimal trajectory problems, so ...

  3. Advanced Flow Control System for In-Space Electric Propulsion

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: T2

    CU Aerospace (CUA) and the University of Michigan (UM) propose the development of the Cycle Automated Mass Flow (CAMFlow) system for reliable and well-regulated flow control. CAMFlow uses an innovative control scheme that enables stable operation using only Boolean valve states, even for the low flow rates necessary for sub-kilowatt Hall effect thrusters. This methodology removes system complexity ...

  5. Low Flame Temperature Monopropellant Propulsion Unit for Cubesats (MPUC)

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: Z8

    CU Aerospace (CUA) proposes the scaling of an alternative very low-toxicity monopropellant thruster to a 0.5 N class engine.nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;CMP-8 (CUA Mono-Propellant 8) is a non-detonable yet energetic COTS formulation that possesses many system-level advantages including lower cost (COTS propellant and non-refractory thruster construction), lower thermal load (lt;1000deg;C flame temp), low viscos ...

  6. Advanced Plasma Sprayed Conductive Thermal Control Material Systems (TCMS)- For Improved Performance

    SBC: Applied Material Systems Engineering, Inc.(AMSENG)            Topic: S3

    This Phase I proposal is submitted to verify the materials and process engineering of the space environment stable, multifunctional Plasma Sprayable conductive thermal control material system (TCMS) that can be applied to space hardware and can enables the hardware to carry higher leakage current through co doping process engineering for the high electrical conductivity. An innovative space enviro ...

  7. Extreme Environment Tribological Characterization of Advanced Bearing Materials

    SBC: ATSP Innovations, Inc.            Topic: S4

    In extremenbsp;temperatures withnbsp;variable atmospheresnbsp;in space exploration, traditional oil lubricants and greases are infeasible. To develop and verify the correct bearing materials/lubricants for these environments, we will use a special instrument for tribological study at extreme temperate conditions with a controlled gas atmosphere. We propose preliminary testing of one tribo-pair of ...

  8. High Specific Power Radiation Hard Bifacial Back Metal Mirror Solar Cells for Flex Arrays

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: S3

    MicroLink Devices proposes to develop triple-junction (3J) epitaxial lift-off (ELO) solar cells containing Bifacial Back Metal Mirror (BBMM) technology to allow for reduced mass through device structure thinning as well as cooler and more efficient operation by selectively rejecting excess broadband infrared (IR) radiation. These BBMM 3J solar cells will achieve 33% 1-Sun AM0 beginning-of-life (BO ...

  10. METIS: A System and MBSE Methodology for Small Spacecraft Development

    SBC: ORBITAL TRANSPORTS, LLC            Topic: Z8

    Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) methods and tools are being used to improve capabilities and reliability in small spacecraft missions. These methods and tools enable rapid, comprehensive, deeper and more integrated spacecraft design across the entire life cycle from initial concept through system operations and end of mission disposal. We propose to develop METIS (Methodology Integration Sy ...
